An Introduction to HHVM

Sunny Aug 15, 2013

HHVM (HipHop Virtual Machine) converts PHP code into a high-level bytecode (commonly known as an intermediate language). This bytecode is then translated into x64 machine code dynamically at runtime by a just-in-time (JIT) compiler. In these respects, HHVM has similarities to virtual machines for other languages including C#/CLR and Java/JVM.

She Was Following Her Heart!

Sunny Mar 15, 2013

Our modern view of romantic love is so profoundly foolish because it fails to grasp the fact that the unconstrained search for romantic love leads to a never ending stream of new love, ultimately followed by disappointment/disinterest for one and heartbreak for the other. This constant quest for a new high or fix followed by the inevitable crash is at the core of choice addiction. For women pursuing choice addiction the reality of the larger pattern is nearly universally ignored, and the momentary feeling of “I will love him forever” is frozen in time with the trail of wreckage conveniently forgotten.

When men act this ...

A website needs revision

Sunny Nov 5, 2012

Too many people pay developers to develop their website just to forget about it once the website is up and running. They might correct or modify some of the content over time, but that’s it.

A website is like a car and it needs maintenance – not only the content, but the core of the website. Would you really buy a car and use it every day without getting it to the mechanic at least twice a year for an oil change or an engine tune-up? Your website is kind of like a car: it won’t need its oil changed, but the code will need ...
